A disturbing suicide note by a promising PhD research scholar Rohith V of the university of Hyderabad lead social media outrage against the council of ministry to suspended him. 25 year old Rohith is from Guntur district, he along with 4 others led a strike but they were eventually expelled from their hostels and therefore, were forced to sleep on streets. His death led to outrage in social media and nation wide protest for the unfair treatment of Dalit students by BJP led government. Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya, University Vice-Chancellor P. Appa Rao and two others are booked for his suicide. Rohith was found hanging in a hostel. His suicide note was released in media.

It has become truly difficult to love without getting hurt. The value of a man was reduced to his immediate identity and nearest possibility. To a vote. To a number. To a thing. Never was a man treated as a mind. As a glorious thing made up of star dust. In every field, in studies, in streets, in politics, and in dying and living. I am writing this kind of letter for the first time. My first time of a final letter. Forgive me if I fail to make sense. My birth is my fatal accident. I can never recover from my childhood loneliness. The unappreciated child from my past. May be I was wrong, all the while, in understanding world. In understanding love, pain, life, death. There was no urgency. But I always was rushing. Desperate to start a life. All the while, some people, for them, life itself is curse. My birth is my fatal accident. I can never recover from my childhood loneliness. The unappreciated child from my past. I am not hurt at this moment. I am not sad. I am just empty. Read full letter here
